Neneh Cherry, The Thing

The Cherry Thing

Label: Smalltown Supersound

Format: Vinyl LP

Out of stock

LP version. "The Thing took their name from a piece by Don Cherry: when they first got together it was to play his music. So it does make sense that they should eventually team up with Don Cherry's daughter, Neneh Cherry. Meeting in London in the fall of 2010 to record, it clicked right away as they all shared an open, free approach to the music. The high energy of The Thing's playing found a fitting counterpart in Neneh's intense style. Includes covers of songs from Suicide, Stooges, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry Martina Topley-Bird & Mf Doom.
